Here's a crafty way to spend your Saturday

IT HAS been quite an expensive year for the QCWA Urangan Branch and they need to get back on track.

The ladies recently made a substantial donation to the QCWA State Public Rural Crisis Fund to help rebuild Queensland communities after Cyclone Debbie and the following heavy rains and substantial flooding, as well making a donation to the Maryborough Zone Young Leaders.

So when doors open to this Saturday's tombola and Knitting, Crocheting, Cookery, Floral Art International Competition Day, QCWA member Cae Adams is hoping to see a superb turnout.

"We are hoping for support from the community to be able to boost our funds to continue to support these associations again when necessary," Mrs Adams said.

"This is also the time of year when we make our annual donations to various groups in our community, such as Hervey Bay Riding for the Disabled, Meals on Wheel Fraser Community, local Fire Brigades and the like.

"We would love community support in the form of entries into the competition or just being present on the day."

All the competitions are open to the public and you do not need to be a QCWA member to enter.

Tombola prizes have been supplied by members and will include hand made crafts, kitchen goods, personal items, fruit and vegetables, home baking and more.

The event will be held at the QCWA Urangan Progress Hall this Saturday, June 3, 19 Pulgul St, Urangan, from 9am.

For entry details like classes and required entry sizes, please contact the organisers for an event schedule.

All entries must be in by 8am for judging at 8.30am.
